Diary entry:
Back at home and back to work.
Straight into it, working on a Key West post.
We have a LOT of snow, so I spent some time clearing the drive.
That had to count as exercise as I didn’t make it to the gym.
Seem to have coped well with the time difference this time.

Name: Two Captains
Producer: Nøgne Ø of Grimstad, Norway
Alcohol content: 8.5%
Bottle size: 500 ml
Purchased from: Duty Free store, Trondheim Airport, Norway

Picked a few beers up at Duty Free on my way home. This is an excellent IPA, very similar to mine.

Wasn’t expecting much from this but it was actually very good. That’ll teach me to be cynical…

Luxury and a central location don't have to cost the earth in Helsinki, Finland... #nbefinland
An excellent choice for your stay in Helsinki, the Radisson Blu Seaside is also good value for money in the Finnish capital

Diary entry:
Another massive snowfall saw me clearing the drive once more this morning.
Should be great for skiing for several weeks now, surely.

Knocked a few other posts out too.
To the shops then made dinner, relaxed in the evening.

Another from Duty-Free, I thought this was a weizen when I bought it but it was a dark lager. Great, though.
